    LOL, this is about the same post as I put in the turkey section EXCEPT its about hatching guineas. I have done reading about it, tried to hatch both turkeys and guineas last year with no luck.
    SO, what has worked the best for everyone in hatching GUINEAS? Can they be incubated with the turkeys?
    Getting some in next week so doing more and MORE research on it.

    I hatch them all together...guineas take anywhere from 24-28 days...depends on when they feel like popping out...LOL Oh, and when I say popping out...they are full of energy as soon as they hatch!!! They are also fast! LOL Temps the same...humidity is the same as well...

    Well, since they take close or the same amount of time as turkeys, I will use the same incubator for those.[​IMG]
    I have heard guinea keets are quite active,lol.
    Oh edited to say, I am getting mine from chickenlittle32. [​IMG]
